Professional Land Surveyor Survey Party: A Few Land Surveying Pictures From The Field

December 28, 2009 in Associate Membership, Land Surveying, Land Surveying Equipment, Leica, Pictures

This Professional Land Surveyor Survey Party is brought to you by EricColburn.com – Professional Land Surveyor Source – showing a few pictures I snapped while carrying out land surveying field work somewhat recently.

Most of these pictures were taken within the last few weeks, which you might be able to tell by the snow and/or stark cold looking locales, but a couple are from a few months ago when the climate was a little warmer (and greener). Right after the most recent pictures were taken we got hit with that blizzard most of you along the eastern seaboard got hit with too, getting 18-20 inches of snow. The good news is that today, most of that snow is gone!

Historic Map-Vertical section of the bed of the Atlantic Ocean, from Valencia, Ireland, to Trinity Bay, Newfoundland

I found this interesting historic map at a History of the Atlantic Cable & Undersea Communications from the first submarine cable of 1850 to the worldwide fiber optic network site. This site also has other historic Submarine Cable Route Maps, too.

This is an early Plan and Profile , or “Vertical Section” as it is noted on the plan, showing the bed of the Atlantic Ocean from Valencia, Ireland, to Trinity Bay, Newfoundland from 1857. This survey, or map, shows the surveyed soundings made by Lieut. Dayman in H.M.S. Cyclops, 1857,
for laying the Atlantic Telegraph Cable.

Due to the relationship of ocean depths of the surveyed soundings and overall horizontal distance covered, the vertical scale is 72 times greater than the horizontal (longitudinal) scale. I guess that with an engineering project like this a 50 horizontal/4 vertical scale just wouldn’t cut it.
